FanGraphs Audio: Jay Jaffe Gazes into Mookie Betts’ Future

Episode 870

FanGraphs senior writer Jay Jaffe joins the program to discuss the current potential for ties, and thus chaos, in the postseason field, Jay’s preference that the playoffs feature match ups of the game’s best rosters, and his predictions for which teams make it to October, and the World Series. We also discuss his impressions of the current major league home run leaderboard and all these damn home runs, as well as Mookie Betts’ future in Boston. Jay also swears in Yiddish. It’s fine.

You can read Jay’s primer on Team Entropy, and the possible playoff scenarios it might inspire, from last week here.
